Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson is currently playing the slick lawyer at Broadway's Ambassador Theatre through March 9. A spokesperson for the New York production said that nothing is finalized, although negotiations are in progress for Pellow's N.Y. arrival. This would mark the Broadway debut for Pellow, who was a member of the Scottish band Wet Wet Wet before starting a solo career. Several stars of the London production of the Kander and Ebb musical have made the trans-Atlantic trip to Broadway, including Ruthie Henshall, Denise Van Outen, Ute Lemper and Caroline O'Connor; the latter is currently starring in the Broadway company as Velma Kelly. The Ambassador Theatre is located at 215 West 49th Street. For ticket information, call Telecharge at (212) 239-6200 or visit www.telecharge.com.
The London production continues to run at the Adelphi Theatre, while the film of the musical — directed by Rob Marshall — is currently playing in theatres in both London and the U.S.
